With Stereotaxis, we are able to reach anywhere in the heart with more precision and safety.
Every new innovation needs a trail blazer, and at Kaiser Santa Clara Medical Center in California, the one who forged a path for robotics in cardiac ablation was Dr. Charlie Young. A practicing cardiac EP with Kaiser for over 30 years, who recently retired after directing Kaiser Permanente Thrive’s cardiac EP services, Dr. Young saw the potential in Stereotaxis technologies and was instrumental in bringing it to the new Santa Clara Medical Center in 2008. Before retiring, he built a leading robotic EP program that, to this day, remains number one in the west for patients treated using RMN.
Safety and efficacy are paramount for the Kaiser team and, “With Stereotaxis, we are able to reach anywhere in the heart with more precision and safety,” says Dr. Young, who performed more than 500 procedures on the Stereotaxis system.
Thanks to Dr. Young for leading the advancement of state-of-the-art procedures to improve patients’ lives!
